the tragedy in benghazi that cost the lives of ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. john kerry, a long-time member of the senate, head of the foreign relations committee, will have no problem winning confirmation of that body. that will reconclude a fight there. that was a fight the president really didn't want to have this early in what will be his second term. so we expect the nomination to come later today. whether or not the president announces it himself we have yet to hear. back to you. jenna: wendell goler, thank you. jon: let's talk about all this with chris wallace. he is of course the anchor of "fox news sunday". maybe the worst-kept secret in washington. everybody expected it was going to be john kerry. what does he bring to this post, chris? >> well he certainly brings experience. he has been a member of the senate a long time. he is chairman as wendell said of the senate foreign relations committee. he seems to have a good working relationship between president obama and his national security team. in fact obama has used him several times as a personal envoy to dea
mullen and thomas pickering spoke about the report they offered on september 11 attack in benghazi, libya to cut u.s. ambassador christina and three other americans. the report cited systemic failures, leadership and management efficiencies and inadequate security at the conflict facility. three state department officials including eric boswell, assistant secretary of state in diplomatic security have resigned in the wake of the report. next, senators on the foreign relations committee who received the report speak to reporters. how not [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] [inaudible] >> my understanding is that the standard with which the accountability board looks at people is a very high standard called breach of duty. but there's no question that there were people within the state department that were missed and did not execute in an appropriate way. there is also some cultural issues and i mean, there were no doubt a number of problems. i would just say to that end, i know that secretary clinton was unable to be able to testify in an open setting. i do think it's imper
that the state department suffered from systemic failures in its response to the threat in benghazi. and it says, insufficient security was present on the ground. the report also looks into the military response to the attack which killed our ambassador and three other americans. defense secretary leon panetta now saying it was clearly a terrorist attack despite early reports blaming it on a protest that got out of hand. >> as always with these kinds of situations there is a mix here but clearly with regards to one of the facilities involved, a direct attack on that facility. i think that there's no question that extremists were involved in those attacks and i think that, you know, we were able to try to respond as best we could at the time. bill: chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge on the story from the beginning. what does the report conclude, catherine? >> reporter: thai, bill, good morning. it is a scathing report. there are 29 recommendations, five of which are classified. all of which have been accepted by the secretary of state hillary clinton. this report concludes that t
.s. consulate in benghazi. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed that day. the panel finding security in benghazi was grossly inadequate to cope with the attack, that washington ignored repeated requests to beef up personnel, and ultimately a lack of transparency, responsiveness and leadership senior levels both this washington and in libya. alise, what do you make of this report. a lot of these findings we've been talking about for a very long time. >> that's right, but also in the last few months, there's been so much politicization of this attack, especially with these talking points and the whole issue of susan rice, ambassador susan rice and what she said about whether there was a protest. this report didn't find that there was a protest, but it also kind of really is the first look at what went wrong, a kind of very sobering look i'd say of what went wrong. and they said that basically the state department and the embassy in libya kind of missed the warning signs that there was an imminent attack coming. there wasn't a specific threat, but a lot of attacks on ot
. >>> finally, some real answers about the benghazi attack that killed four americans. we now know more than reason for the grossly inadequate security. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." we begin with president obama's call to action against what he calls the national epidemic of gun violence amid the trauma over the newtown school massacre, he has put vice president biden in charge of the agenda that could be submitted to congress next month. and a growing number of americans want action from the government. a brand new poll shows that 52% of u.s. adult dults favor major restrictions on guns, making all guns illegal versus 47% last august. let's turn to our white house correspondent brianna keilar. she's joining us. the president came out and didn't mince very words. >> reporter: no, wolf. this is the first time that president obama has laid out a time line. he appointed vice president biden to lead this group of cabinet lawmakers to come out with some solutions and he wants those recommends from him no later than january. the president said this time washington won't just t
will talk about the benghazi report, what it means for the administration. josh rogin who is following the story at "foreign-policy" magazine is at the table. >> if you work for them, you would get a material, sometimes generous, sometimes overbearing, sometimes almost coal balls -- cruel boss. he did not know how to apologize, which men of his age and class -- they are not going to apologize to a young private secretary, a typist. he had a way of sort of turning the tables and his version of the apology would say, actually, i am a very kind man and you are doing a very good job today. the issue is never settles. he always had to get the last word in. one night going through whitehall, a gentleman bomb fell nearby. he should not been out at all. and his bodyguard inspector thompson pushed him in a doorway. and a couple of thompson's men were slightly wounded. churchill did not like to be touched. and he said, thompson, don't do that. thompson said, sir, you shouldn't be out here. this is dangerous. churchill said i am only doing this because i know live -- you love to. >> sunday, exten
-clear was sounded. >>> a scathing new report about the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, claims failures of leadership and management created a lack of security at that facility. four americans, including u.s. ambassador chris stephens, were killed in that attack back on september 11 of this year. the independent report calls security at the benghazi consulate grossly inadequate and criticizes the state department for not better coordinating for what security was there and relying on local militias. but it does recommend no disciplinary action, at least right now. the report says the attack was the work of terrorists, and that despite those initial reports, there was tests outside the consulate before that attack. >> what i thought was interesting was our secretary of state's reaction. because ultimately, she is in charge of the state department. we know she's been suffering from this concussion and many people have said, that was very convenient. >> right, questioning the timing. >> questioning the timing. but she says the accountability review board report provides a clear loo
a fight over benghazi. the big question is, did she fall on her sword or did the white house hand her one. clearly she was thrown under the bus. >> gretchen: this is what she wrote on september 16th when secretary of state was unavailable after a grueling week, the white house asked me to appear on five sunday talk shows. i relied on fully cleared unclassified points provided by the intelligence committee. the unclassified points were consistent with the classified assessments, i received. first of all was hillary clinton really not available or did she say she didn't want to go tell something that was not the truth. as katherine heritage, un ambassador rice had access to the pdp. presidential daily briefing before she went out on the talk show and talked about the fact that it was probably a terrorist attack. >> brian: charles krauthammer said now that rice is out and the president decided not to fight the fight here. it mines the end of pursuing the truth with the benghazi attack. >> clearly had she been nominated the benghazi scandal would be on the front page. i think it will die now
